The Los Angeles County coroner's office on Friday listed the cause of death for "Star Wars" star Carrie Fisher as "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors".

Fisher had a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23rd previous year and was immediately rushed to the hospital.

Another factor contributing to her death was the build-up of fatty tissue in the walls of her arteries, the coroner reportedly found. The release states that the "Star Wars" actress showed signs of having taken multiple drugs, but investigators could not determine whether they contributed to her death in December.
